Trademarks are an integral part of a brand’s identity, serving as a powerful tool to differentiate products and services from competitors.
Redfield IP PC conducts trademark searches to identify potentially conflicting marks. This involves examining registrations and pending applications for similar marks covering similar goods/services as well as potentially conflicting common law (unregistered) marks to ensure our clients’ brand names, logos, slogans, and symbols won’t infringe upon the rights of others. By meticulously analyzing the search results, we advise clients and their marketing teams on potential risks and suggest alternative options if necessary.
We initiate the trademark registration process, preparing and filing applications with the USPTO, the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) under the Madrid International Registration System, and working with trusted local counsel to file national applications with the appropriate intellectual property offices worldwide. This entails ensuring the accurate classification of goods and services, drafting strategic descriptions, and meeting all necessary legal requirements. We work directly with USPTO Examiners through the prosecution process, addressing any inquiries that may arise, and filing responses to Office Actions and Provisional Refusals that may issue. Following the successful registration, we proactively maintain and renew our clients’ trademarks and keep track deadlines through use of advanced state of the art trademark docketing systems. Our trademark prosecution services include:
- Strategic trademark and domain name counseling
- US and international clearance
- Domestic and international trademark prosecution
- International Registrations under the Madrid System
- Corporate Due Diligence
- Assignments, coexistence, licensing and purchase agreements
- Recordation Issues
